of its stations. the new machines are in. they are wrapped in plastic and not operational. unlike the existing machines, which have braille on their surfaces, for instructions for the blind, the new machines have no braille and no audio component. metro spokeswoman, caroline lucas told us by phone that transit managers have made an internal decision to keep the new distribution machines turned off until they are fully compliant with the americans with disabilities act. some metro customers question that decision. >> mitchell has a lot of problems, why not make something a little easier for the public? >> you say turn on the machines now? >> turn on the machines now and make it widely publicized when the other features are added. >> metro promises to have working machines at every station, you may not find them at every entrance to every station. >> this is the jennifer street

progresses to respiratory failure, meaning we have to put patients on mechanical ventilation. we have to put them on machines. >> park officials closed the so-called luxury cabins on tuesday, saying the design made it easy for mice to nest between a wall. a 2010 report warned park officials that rodent inspection efforts should be increased after a visitor fell ill. the state says that while officials in yosemite took steps to deal with the problem, there are limitations given its location. campers are worried. >> i did think about it and i had my dad calling me. he was concerned about it. >> seems like low risk, but if you get it, obviously it's very serious. so definitely something we have been talking about. >> two people are working in the park to figure out why their rodent population is larger and trying to see how much of the population carries the virus. in new york, anna, fox news.
>> another deadly fall at a sports arena. this time it happened at the georgia dome in atlanta. investigators say a 20-year-old fan fell about 35 feet from the upper level during the tennessee, north carolina game on friday. the fan fell on to another man who was treated at a nearby hospital and released. this happened just one day after a fan fell to his death from an escalator in houston. a teenager on his way to a birthday party died after sticking his head out of the emergency hatch in a party bus. the bus went under an overpass. a security guard on the bus says he had repeatedly told the teenagers not to open that hatch. the bus is going from new york city to garfield, new jersey. he bus company will conduct an a storm is over and the heat is back and thousands, hundreds and thousands of people are sweltering without power in louisiana. fox's john has the latest on the aftermath of isaac. >> recovery efforts are underway after hurricane isaac
